Blog | What you should know about Vitamin C

In the pursuit of radiant and healthy skin, we often turn to various skincare ingredients and treatments. Among these, Vitamin C - also known as Ascorbic acid - stands out as a powerhouse ingredient renowned for its numerous benefits.

Let’s learn more about Vitamin C and why it's a skincare essential.

It’s a powerful antioxidant

Vitamin C is celebrated for its potent antioxidant properties. This means it helps protect the skin from oxidative stress caused by free radicals, environmental pollutants, and UV radiation.

It can come from 100% natural Sources

While Vitamin C occurs naturally in foods such as citrus fruits, broccoli, and peppers, incorporating it into your skincare routine through serums or topical products can provide targeted benefits for your skin.

It improves Immune Response

If you don’t think you’re getting enough Vitamin C from natural sources, supplements work wonders from the inside out, bolstering the body's immune response and promoting overall skin health. But make sure to speak to your doctor first before taking any new supplements.

It helps with Pigmentation Control

Vitamin C inhibits the onset of pigmentation and helps fade existing pigmentation spots, leading to a more even, radiant complexion.

It can help Protect from Skin Cancer

By combating free radical damage, Vitamin C helps protect the skin from pre-cancerous cells, making it a vital component of any comprehensive skincare routine.

It’s a great Collagen and Elastin Booster

Naturally strengthening collagen and elastin fibers, Vitamin C helps firm and plump the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

There’s L-Ascorbic Acid in some serums

When it comes to topical application, the Vitamin C found in facial serums is highly absorbed by the skin. Serums, with their smaller molecular size, penetrate deeply into the skin, delivering Vitamin C where it's needed most.

Incorporating Vitamin C into your skincare routine can help you to improve your complexion and maintain skin health for years to come.
